Year 11 Revision Support

Supporting our Year 11s with revision resources

The first written GCSE exam for our Year 11 pupils takes place on Thursday 9 May 2024. We are keen to make sure that our Year 11 pupils can easily access all the support they need and know where to find resources which their subject teachers are recommending. 

We offer a number of revision top-up and drop-in sessions for our Year 11 pupils, as well as pointing pupils in the direction of additional paper-based and online resources. Pupils should take advantage of the resources shared with them on RM Unify and Show My Homework. 

We recommend that pupils make the most of their time by attending any extra sessions being offered by subject teachers; these present the perfect opportunity for pupils to ask about any areas they feel less confident about. 

Please note: these listings were updated on 28 February 2024 but may be subject to change. Pupils should double-check with their teachers.
